Apples and Health Rap (audio clip)

One of the times I was on Kids America, was just after my friend Bruce Spero and I had sent in a box of Apples to the show. (Apples are the primary crop in Harvard, Massachusetts where we grew up). At the same time we had co-written a “rap” which we practiced and performed on the air as you can hear in this clip. If memory serves, we were both at our own separate houses for this phone call, so we were performing without even being in the same room. It didn’t come out half bad, but sadly Kids America was cancelled a few months after this recording was made. As such, this is the only public performance of “Health Rap” that ever occurred. Now, here it is for you to enjoy…

    Hey there! I don’t think you’re on Facebook (unless you’re well hidden), so figured I’d drop you a note here. Thanks for posting! SO funny to hear what we sound like, and to bring back memories of the show. I found a few other things you might find cool. Even if you’re not on FB, you should be able to access this:

    I hope things are good!

    Hiya Bruce. Not sure if you ever got my reply from the other address, so sending another here. Hope you’re well and safe these days. I think back often to deerfoot trail and the old native american cave. Good times.
    Hopefully I can take the time to head back to Harvard and if so I’ll drop a line for sure. Cheers – J
